The Yakan weavers design their fabrics with inspiration from the natural landscape and seascape of Basilan. These fabrics have geometric patterns and bold colors painstakingly made traditionally from pineapple and abaca fibers.
Batik bags - For millenia, Tausug weavers and seamstresses used these brightly patterned fabrics to trade across Asia. Mostly imported from Indonesia but made into bags, pouches, and clothes by Tausug tailors.
